Hot Stones Massage

Hot Stones Massage is a profoundly powerful and relaxing massage using warm basalt stones (Lava stone) produced from volcanic eruptions. Being massaged with warm smooth stones is like a heat pack in motion, where the heat warms and relaxes the muscles, calms the nervous system, and improves circulation more quickly than in traditional massage. What you will feel is a luxuriously relaxing massage while getting the benefits of a deep tissue massage. Andrea has been doing Hot Stones Massage for years and her clients have often commented that they have found the warmth of the hot stones to be very comforting and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The benefits of this type of massage include people suffering from Fibromylagia or sensitive to pain as well as those that have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. The heat from the stones relaxes the muscles thus allowing the therapist to work the muscles without needing to use deep pressure. As a bonus, due to their incredible thermal characteristics, basalt stones help to remove toxic waste products from the muscles. The stones can also be used to rebalance the body and mind by being placed on the meridians (energy pathways) of the body. The massage therapist always holds the stones first before touching them to your body, which ensures that the temperature will not be too warm. Everyone, however, has their own comfort range. Be sure to speak up if the stones are too warm for you.
